    I'm having a problem similar to this one (  I am using image buttons *inside* a rotator control (that is in a user control).  So for instance the following does not work:



    asp:ImageButton ID="imgBtnForward" runat="server" OnClientClick="$find('HomeRotator1$radRotateHome').showNext(Telerik.Web.UI.RotatorScrollDirection.Right);" ImageUrl="/images//but_forward.gif" width="18" height="18" />

    How can I get this to work properly?

    Hello Samantha,

    I was able to reproduce the problem. It occur because the asp:ImageButton inside the rotator does a  postback and a new RadRotator object is created. To avoid this, you can cancel the postback by using the "return false ;" statement :

    <asp:ImageButton ID="ImageButton2" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/images/image2.jpg" OnClientClick="GoRight(); return false;" /> 

    The implementation of the GoRight() function is :

    <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server"
        <script type="text/javascript"
    function GetRadRotator() 
        var oRadRotator = $find('<%=HomeRotator1.ClientID %>'); 
        return oRadRotator; 
    function GoRight() 
        var oRotator = GetRadRotator()

    I suggest you to use server parentheses to get the ID of the RadRotator as follows :
    var oRadRotator = $find('<%=HomeRotator1.ClientID %>'); 

    Note that server parentheses cannot be used inside a tag with attribute runat="server" (by default the <head> section has it), so if you put this code in the head section, make sure that you have wrapped it in RadCodeBlock.
